The first significant study of the innovative oeuvre of American Conceptual artist Oppenheim (b. 1938), a pioneering figure in the Earth Art and Body Art movements of the late 1960s and early 70s, this richly illustrated catalogue documents some 100 diverse works that range from environmental sculptures, performance pieces, films and videos to the complex machine-based installations and assemblages of appropriated Pop images that have dominated the artist's work of the 1980s. A substantial interview with Oppenheim illuminates his working methods and the ideological context of his experimental art, while a lengthy essay details the development of his provocative oeuvre through thoughtful analyses of individual pieces and the personal and social themes they embody.
